Low calorie feed balancer.

SHAPE-UP is a low starch, high fibre mix designed to provide a balanced diet at low intake levels, and to help maintain a normal, healthy metabolism. It can be used as a calorie controlled ration for those prone to laminitis, Equine Metabolic Syndrome or Cushing's in order to meet micronutrient requirements without excess sugar, calories and starch intake.

SHAPE-UP is the result of nearly two years of research and development and incorporates some of the most recent and up to date nutritional innovations for horses and ponies that require a low starch and low calorie feed. The ration is based on Saracen Horse Feeds' "Super-fibre" technology, meaning that energy is dervied from slow-release, fibre sources that produce a minimal glycemic response post feeding. The high fibre content of SHAPE-UP and the inclusion of an original neutralizing ingredient also help to maintain a healthy digestive system for those good-doers that may be on a restricted forage ration.

SHAPE-UP should be fed at the recommended feeding levels, and also in conjunction with a suitable forage source. Saracen can supply you with a specific SHAPE-UP measuring cup, contact us today. For effective weight loss and weight management, hay should be analysed for its non-structural carbohydrate (NSC) content and ideally should contain less than 10-12% NSC. Providing that your horse is sound, every effort should be made to implement a sensible and regular exercise regime.

Horses and ponies that are overweight or predisposed to laminitis

'Good-doers' and native breeds
